A couple of things:
* This is my now obligatory “I’ve caught with all my e-mail for the last couple of weeks so if you sent me something and wanted a response but didn’t get one, send it again” notice.
* This next week is likely to see Whatever on an abbreviated schedule of some sort, on account that I have some work to catch up with, there’s a major holiday at some point in the week (I think near the end of it; I’ll have to double-check) and because at some point I am traveling to Los Angeles to do the Loscon thing. Which is to say, hey, I’ll be busy in the real world. I expect you might be too. But to help make up for it, I’m posting a Big Idea two-fer this Tuesday. Yes! Two Big Idea pieces for the price of one! And now you have a reason to live, at least through Tuesday.
Thank you for your attention. You are now free to go on with your lives.
